I am a 34 year old 4th generation construction tadesman with a deep passion for woodworking. My love began out of necessity because I was not happy with the quality and price of furniture on the market. One winter when I was snowed in I walked out to my two car garage where my tools were just sitting there staring at me. I had the bright idea to build my wife a sofa table and the rest was history I was hooked!

Distressed turned leg dining table with bench

The table top was finished in Rustoleum weathered wood accelerator to give the piece that perfect patina, and then sprayed with minwax waterbased spar urethane. The turned leg base also got the weathered wood treatment as the basecoat and then a healthy slathering of general finishes milk paint in antique white. Distressing was tackled by hand and a topcoat of minwax polycrylic was laid down for protection. I was extremely happy with the fit and finish of this piece once completed.
